The aim of the new NSW Australian Institute of Physics Research Poster Presentation Network Event is to provide all NSW HDR students (Honours, Masters and PhD) researchers an opportunity:

  • To present a formal, research-based presentation of their HDR work.
  • To present HDR students research to a learned audience in the friendly environment of a University setting.
  • To promote research opportunities and achievements.
  • To develop physics interaction with researchers, academics, supervisors, students, employers and visitors during the event.
  • To award best research poster presentation prizes recognizing the scientific merit exhibited in the Poster Presentation displays.
    • $500 Honours Research Poster Prize sponsored by Diraq
    • $1000 Masters Research Poster Prize sponsored by Boson Engineering
    • $1000 PhD Research Poster Prize sponsored by Archer

The Physics Research Poster Presentation Network Event will provide opportunities for HDR (Honours, Masters and PhD) students to present their research posters during the three-hour time-frame. Presenters can outline plans for research (thesis proposal) or can use this opportunity to display their research area, topic, present a working research paper, journal publication, conference publication, seminar notes or chapters in the thesis as a poster presentation display. Posters will be judged during the event with monetary prizes presented for each best poster award category.


  • A poster presentation is one where presenters post materials such as scans, photographs, maps, graphs, tables, and sparingly used equations on a display board together with textual summaries. 
  • The sequence of the poster sections should be clearly indicated by numbers or arrows and follow a logical pattern.
  • Each poster should display the title, authors, supervisors and affiliations for the work. Title information is in larger font. Text fonts should be 20-24 point.
  • Extensive use of captioned illustrations, graphs, photographs or other visually appealing material is extremely useful as a means of communication.
  • The poster board size provided at this event will be 1.8 metres high by 1.2 metres wide. Presenters will bring own pins or Velcro strips to attach poster.
  • Choose a title that captures the reader’s attention and accurately reflects the contents of the poster.
  • Underline the presenting author’s name.
  • List the author’s main affiliated institutes/organisations and their locations.
  • State the aim(s)/purpose(s) of the project clearly.
  • Keep the methods section brief, unless the subject of your presentation is a description of a method. Dot points are satisfactory.
  • Use the main part of the poster area for the results section of your material. Use graphics, pictures, figures and/or tables to illustrate your findings.
  • Briefly discuss the implications of your work, the highlights and problems encountered.
  • Briefly summarise your findings and the main conclusions drawn from your study.
  • Keep literature citations to a minimum.
